    Biotribology (ISTE) by J. Paulo Davim
    Publisher: Wiley-ISTE; 1 edition (December 6, 2010) | ISBN: 1848212755 | Pages: 224 | PDF | 7.96 MB

    Tribology is the “science and technology of interactingsurfaces in relative motion” and encompasses the study offriction, wear and lubrication. By extension biotribology isusually defined as the tribological phenomena occurring in eitherthe human body or in animals. Therefore, it is possible to considertribological processes that may occur after implantation of anartificial device in the human body and the tribological processesnaturally occurring in or on the tissues and organ of animals.Animals, including humans, possess a wide variety of sliding andfrictional interfaces.

    Verallgemeinerte Netzwerke in der Mechatronik
    Publisher: Oldenbourg Wissensch.Vlg (January 1, 2013) | ISBN: 3486712616 | Pages: 263 | PDF | 3.04 MB

    Die Mechatronik ist im Gegensatz zur Mechanik oder Elektrotechnik ein relativ junges Wissenschaftsgebiet. So wurde dieser Begriff erstmals 1969 vom japanischen Unternehmen Yaskawa Electric Corporation geprägt. So wie sich die Elektrotechnik vor mehr als hundert Jahren erfolgreich von der Mechanik abgespalten hat, ist in der heutigen Zeit die Mechatronik auf diesem Wege. Eine erfolgreiche Trennung sowie eine tatsächliche langfristige Etablierung als ein eigenständiges Wissenschaftsgebiet kann jedoch nur dann erfolgreich vollzogen werden, wenn diesem Wissenschaftsgebiet eine eigene Theorie zugrunde liegt. Nur so lässt sich etwa der Erfolg der Regelungstechnik als ehemaliger Zweig der Elektrotechnik erklären.

    Annual Plant Reviews, The Plant Hormone Ethylene (Volume 44)
    Publisher: Wiley-Blackwell; Volume 44 edition (April 23, 2012) | ISBN: 1444330039 | Pages: 416 | PDF | 14.7 MB

    The plant hormone ethylene is one of the most important, being one of the first chemicals to be determined as a naturally-occurring growth regulator and influencer of plant development. It was also the first hormone for which significant evidence was found for the presence of receptors. This important new volume in Annual Plant Reviews is broadly divided into three parts. The first part covers the biosynthesis of ethylene and includes chapters on S-adenosylmethionine and the formation and fate of ACC in plant cells.

    The Pauson-Khand Reaction: Scope, Variations and Applications
    Publisher: Wiley; 1 edition (April 30, 2012) | ISBN: 0470970766 | Pages: 328 | PDF | 10.6 MB

    The Pauson-Khand reaction is an important reaction in the field of organic chemistry. It involves the transition-metal catalysed cycloaddition of an alkyne, an alkene and carbon monoxide, to produce cyclopentenones. The importance of this reaction originates from its high value in transforming simple components into the synthetically useful cyclopentenone unit, in which a high degree of molecular complexity can be achieved in a single step, with impressive stereochemical and regiochemical control. The Pauson-Khand Reaction investigates the nature and many variations of this reaction.

    The Grammar of Science
    Publisher: Adam and Charles Black | 1911 | ISBN: none | Pages: 623 | PDF | 11.3 MB

    THIS work has been out of print for some time, and I have long meditated as to whether it was or was not desirable to reissue it. A nd, if it were desirable, the problem of how it could possibly be done in a manner likely to satisfy the modern reader has raised much doubt in my mind.

    A Problem Seminar (Problem Books in Mathematics)
    Publisher: Springer; Softcover reprint of the original 1st ed. 1982 edition (November 1, 1982) | ISBN: 0387907653 | Pages: 113 | PDF | 5.13 MB

    There was once a bumper sticker that read, "Remember the good old days when air was clean and sex was dirty?" Indeed, some of us are old enough to remember not only those good old days, but even the days when Math was/un(!), not the ponderous THEOREM, PROOF, THEOREM, PROOF, . . . , but the whimsical, "I've got a good prob­ lem. " Why did the mood change? What misguided educational philoso­ phy transformed graduate mathematics from a passionate activity to a form of passive scholarship? In less sentimental terms, why have the graduate schools dropped the Problem Seminar?

    A rational finite element basis, Volume 114 (Mathematics in Science and Engineering)
    Publisher: Academic Press; 1ST edition (February 11, 1975) | ISBN: 012728950X | Pages: 344 | PDF | 3.66 MB

    Popularity of the finite element method is such that an astute lecturer or author may increase his audience by choice of a title like “Finite Elements and -,’’ inserting his topic in the blank space, no matter how remotely connected with finite element methods. The title of this book is, nevertheless, precisely the subject of this book. Fundamental to any finite element computation is the definition of an approximation space over a collection of elements. A basis function is associated with each element node so that the approximation within the element is determined by the nodal values. Polynomial basis functions have been widely used, and convergence theory for continuous patchwork polynomial approximation has been developed to a high degree of mathematical sophistication.
